Wikis – know your limits

Don’t get me wrong, I like a good wiki as much as the next fella, but can we please get over sentiments like these:

“A wiki is a group blog that can be edited by its readers… Wikis are more like conversations”

I’d love to be at the wikisym, I get entirely what Socialtext and ProjectForum are doing and, well, there’s some great stuff going down, but please, please, please can people stop talking about conversations and wikis. Ward knows. I think we should catch on too!

And in that vein, ahem, might I propose that if you’re going to ASCILITE 2005 you consider my workshop: High Fidelity Collaboration – WhyWikisWork & WhyWikisWorkNot :o)
